Google Voice Search fail.”Officeworks Sydney”, I say. I get “escorts Sydney” and an ad for a dating agency.

I wonder if the manager of this Dymocks bookstore realises a staff member is snogging a gothboi in the reference section. Can’t blame her.

@thepatus I had thought that NBN NTU would include an analog POTS port. I shall enquire.

@unsungsongs An arseh.at URL shortener would be awesome, so long as I can use it within TweetDeck. If so, yes it will be wond’rous.

Three fat middle-aged white males in cheap business shirts explain the ways of Telstra to the young Asian engineer in his leather jacket.

OH: “You gotta feel sorry for them, just going in to that place every day.” Ah, staff morale!

via TweetDeck

OH: “I’ve been with them since they were called Telecom, and now it’s Telstra, and it’s still the same. It’s still fucked.”

I’m having a technical briefing with NBN Co at some point, so please roll thru the questions.

Damn. My spare battery isn’t charged. Power point required.

@daev Gawd, I don’t have the energy to mount a surveillance op this afternoon. And the RI was depressingly low.

Oh. They’ve gone. That was getting interesting.

OH: “You’re judging me ‘cos I’ve got two tattoos on my neck? Seriously, do you really wanna go down that path? There’s witnesses, you know.”

via TweetDeck

OH: “He can come up to me and reckon I was headed to Ivy, but there’s nothing that’ll prove that. He’s just defending himself.”

via TweetDeck

OH: “Nothing, man! I pushed the chick off and she still wanted me to fuck her. And the footage will show that.”

If people are looking for consistency in what I say today, then they’re a fool to themselves and a burden to others.

via TweetDeck

Look @stokely @Warlach I can’t help it if people are too stupid to learn about their world.

via TweetDeck

Only 78% of Twitter users are lame, @benrhughes? That shows how clever Twitter users really are compared with the general population!

The good news is that this codeine is working. The bad news is that this codeine is working.

Surely all this whining about Twitter’s website design only affects those too lame or intermittent to be using third-party client software?

@DarkTalent Do I have any left? Are you referring to my faith in humanity? Or the cheese platter? Either way, erm, no.

via TweetDeck in reply to DarkTalent

@anthonycole Also, your substitution command is not correctly formed. This is not a good sign.

via TweetDeck in reply to anthonycole

@anthonycole Ah well, we’ll be OK once we get going on this little project. Arranging meetings is always the killer.

@jonoabroad Everything is related to everything else. It’s a Taoist thing.

My 1530 phone conference is now not happening today, so I am still in the Sydney CBD and losing faith in humanity as a whole.

@SnarkyPlatypus I am not sure about your mathematics there. I demand a re-count.

@ClaireRConnelly There’s certainly national breast cancer screening programs, don’t know about the rest.

via TweetDeck in reply to ClaireRPorter

@ClaireRConnelly It’s not a new thing, these tests. I’ll post the actual letter later today.

via TweetDeck in reply to ClaireRPorter

So these government-funded bowel cancer tests… Does Nichola Roxon… um… personally… um… never mind.

What @AntonyGreenABC says is true. The Australian Government is indeed interested in the state of my bowels. I have a letter.

Mobile: Enmore Rd; Newtown station; Wynyard station; Rock Pool Bar & Grill, apparently.

Fri plan: 0900 client phone conference, at last; organise Patch Monday podcast; lunch & errands; many small comms and planning tasks; TGIF.

Of course I know what it means, @trib! A paradigm is an inexpensive hang glider with a two-stroke engine.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus “One of the less offensive members of the NSW govt” is like saying “one of the more respectable pedophiles”.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I need a new new paradigm. I’m bored with this old new paradigm.

@SnarkyPlatypus Je tiens de bonne source que la force motrice de ce phénomène n’est pas les glowsticks.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Chaque jour est le même, l’un après l’autre après l’autre dans un ennui gris sans fin. Et vous?

@JohnBirmingham I suspect that demons have stolen your socks. It is one of their low-grade special powers.

Put more strongly, it explains how Greece is corrupt from arsehole to breakfast time. As they say. http://arseh.at/1f

You can tell that they’re particularly successful because they’re at a bar with tables on the street and they’re talking very loudly.
